Place was full but we were not in the larger dining room. Noise level could have been higher if we had been , but only guessing . Menu items and specials were awesome, great service especially considering there was not an open table . Great price points on wine and food

Covington
About the restaurant
Open since October of 1990, The Dakota has been a pioneer in the culinary industry on the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain. Their cuisine is influenced by the flavorful Creole cuisine, with Contemporary Louisiana. Other influences include the Southwest, California, and Asia using fresh local and seasonal ingredients.
The carefully selected wines pay tribute to the well crafted wines of North America while offering many of the traditional Old World styles of Europe.
In October of 2023, The Dakota moved to its new location in Historic Downtown Covington...just a block from the iconic Southern Hotel.
The Dakota continues to set the mark for what people look for when they dine – well crafted food, detail-oriented service, plush surroundings, and genuine hospitality.

I appreciate the high ceiling and separation between the tables. It helps with the noise level. Our food was very good and so were our servers.

Had a great time celebrating my birthday. The live performer sang happy birthday to me and our server, Alix, let me know about the New Orleans tradition of pinning money on yourself to let people know it's your birthday. Good drinks, good food.
